    a bowl or deep dish. The silver vessels given by the heads of
    the tribes for the services of the tabernacle are so named (Num.
    7:13, etc.). The "charger" in which the Baptist's head was
    presented was a platter or flat wooden trencher (Matt. 14:8, 11;
    Mark 6:25, 28). The chargers of gold and silver of Ezra 1:9 were
    probably basins for receiving the blood of sacrifices.
